Working on Photos February 7, 2012
This is a difficult task but it also brings back so many wonderful memories. We have so many photos. It is a good thing that we have a while to get this all together. We are so lucky to have Mooselips (camp name) helping us too.
I worked on music too. Bill Farmer will be singing at Kathryn’s service. He has a beautiful and strong voice. My piano and choir teacher Jan Larson will play the piano. Bruce Corns who plays the bagpipes at the Tacoma Relay for Life will be playing for Kathryn.
We also worked on food some today as well and how the room will be set up.
Finished the Obituary too. It was hard to finish. Completing it was kind of like completing Kathryn’s life. I think that is why I left it unfinished for a while.
That sweet smell has been here to remind me that Kathryn is here with me. I love it when I smell this sweet smell. It brings me comfort like right now.
We also found some writings of Kathryn’s. She made a list of things that make her happy. Over 500 things were listed. No wonder why she was always so happy. When you have over 500 things that bring you happiness how could you not be happy. I know she didn’t even complete the list because there are many other things that made her happy that weren’t on it.
Richard and I took Princess for a walk at Chambers Bay. It is nice to get out and clear your head. We actually ran into one of the nurses from the ICU. This was Kathryn’s nurse on Christmas Day and she was there when Kathryn had her seizer. She was the one we called out to for help.
We feel very blessed to have all of you surrounding us with love and support.
